cannot wait that long. >> the climate system simply cannot wait for action until after 2020. in doha, we have the opportunity to raise barr for negotiations. those without kyoto targets, developed and developing countries, must implement their changes responsibly. those who have not pledged anything yet should do so. new partnerships of those willing to accelerate beyond their pledges should be encouraged and tracked. >> we are joined by two guests at the qatar national convention center where they say 10,000 people have gathered over the past few days. i have to say, it seems so much smaller than the summit's over the last few years. durban is where kumi naidoo is from, executive director of greenpeace international. samantha smith is also with us, leader of the world wildlife fund global climate and energy initiative. kumi naidoo, the two of you held a news conference, along with a few others, which got some attention. you are calling on u.s. climate negotiators to step down. why? >> when president obama made his election victory speech, he broke his silence on climate change, what it
from syria. inside syr, assad niece if we use them and we see them there will be international action against him. he will be put out. but if he is attacked in damascus, the palace is surround and wanted to break out and leave and may use it against the rebels for that purpose. second more important possibility, if he flees damascus he will not quit syria immediately. he will go to the northwestern part of syria where he has an enclave, his own community. if that enclave is attacked most likely he may be using wmds or chemical or biological weapons. am: very quickly, is anyone from the international community saying go to venezuela, go here, just get out? >> a lot of them. only country would be trust would be protected by iranian regime. he doesn't feel he has yet to go. none of the two major cities, aleppo or damascus has fallen yet. so he will continue that fight. adam: walid, thanks for joining us. in addition to the fiscal issues we have to watch the situation. doesn't feel like a economic story could economic impacts on whole variety of issues including the not only human element
cliff. the leaders i talked to today know their actions will take us over a cliff. i understand there is now perception among the media. the no tax increase republican ares regard the stance as a birthright. a guy that is so anti-spend that he seemed to care more on these issues and more about the accountability for the disaster relief money. i can't believe that. but a lot of guys down there will do anything to prove a point. but i can tell you there are enough garrets to force us over the cliff. given that the garrets are over there. got a question either people don't know about the cliff or they believe that the deal will be done. and they that they have fulfilled the nor quist pledge. where were the republicans when they cut taxes from the chinese two, why didn't republicans press for spending cuts when the president extended the tax cuts? and why doesn't the president offer spending cuts to medicare and defense and social security? how about weapons programs that don't fit in the terrorism world. how about foreign aid and maybe trying to be helpful, i'm sure some of today's
